The auxiliary auto signlight system 1 is installed at an upper portion of an interior rear windshield 6 in such a manner that the auxiliary auto signlight system 1 will not block the rear view from the driver while driving. Moreover, the auxiliary auto signlight system 1 is adapted for equipping with the conventional signlight system of an existing vehicle without any alteration. So, for example, both right turn signal lights on the auxiliary auto signlight system 1 and the conventional signlight system will switch on or off at the same time.

The auxiliary auto signlight system 1 for a vehicle comprises a strobe module 10 mounted on the upper portion of the interior of rear windshield 6, a plurality of strobes 20 each having a replaceable lighting element base 21 serially mounted on the strobe module 10, a plurality of lighting elements 30 such as light bulb or LED replaceably mounted on the lighting element bases 21 inside the strobes 20 respectively, and a connecting means 40 for electrically connected between the strobe 20 of the strobe module 10 and a power outlet of the vehicle for conducting electricity.

At least nine strobes 20 are mounted on the strobe module 10, arranging from two outermost ends are a pair of turn signal lights 11, two interior ends next to the turn signal lights are a pair of taillights 12, two interior ends next to the taillights are a pair of brake signal lights 13, and two interior ends next to the brake signal lights are a pair of back-up signal lights 14 respectively and a center strobe having a SOS logo printed thereon represents an emergency light 15. The emergency light 15 has a size bigger than other strobes is adapted for strongly signifying the emergency signal.

Furthermore, the conventional signlight system installed in the vehicle has different illuminated colors to indicate different signal such as turn signal light having a flashing yellow illuminator. The auxiliary auto signlight system 1 has the same configuration of the conventional signlight system, wherein a flashing yellow illuminator for the turn signal light 11 is indicated when the turn signal switch is turned on, a white illuminator is indicated for the taillight 12, a red illuminator for the brake signal light 13 will be brightened when the driver hit the brake paddle, a white illuminator for the backup signal light 14 will be brightened when the vehicle is in reverse gear, and a purple illuminator is flashing when the emergency signal light 15 is switched on. It is worth to mention that the emergency signal light 15 having a SOS logo will be flashed when the switch is on and the SOS signal will significantly notice people in the surrounding that the driver is in emergency.

As shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, the auxiliary auto signlight system 1 further comprises the signal device 50 mounted inside a side mirror housing 60 wherein the signal device 50 has at least a colored lighting element 30 detachably mounted thereon and connected to the connecting means 40 which comprises electrical wires.
